I came across an interesting set of lectures called the 'Darwin Was Wrong' Conference.

A. Summary of conference;
'2009 is the year of Darwin, marking the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his book, Origin of Species. While much of the world is now paying homage to this man, it is timely to review how profoundly wrong Darwin was on virtually every major topic he addressed. While Darwin was right about the ability of populations to adapt in a limited way to changed environmental conditions, he was profoundly wrong on key scientific issues including: the very nature of science itself; the geological time scale; the incompleteness of the fossil record; the complexity of life; the limits of natural selection; the tree of life; race; and the origin of human beings. More importantly, Darwin was wrong about the disastrous social and moral consequences of his ideas. Lastly, but most importantly, Darwin was wrong about God.

- I've only listened to a couple lectures so far; but I'd recommend the one by Dr. E. Thomas McMullen. ('Darwin was wrong about science)' He teaches or taught the philosophy of science, and gives an introduction to the subject here.

For people interested in the global warming debate, Larry Vardiman has an excellent discussion of the subject in a video that's been posted online. See Some Like it Hot

Much of Dr. Vardiman’s scientific contributions have been in the areas of cloud seeding, ice crystal growth and evolution, the age of the earth’s atmosphere, ice sheet formation during the Ice Age, and catastrophic hurricane formation.

You can download a free copy of The Darwin Conspiracy by Roy Davies from his website. Link
A review of the book can be found at

Quotes and comments;

A. 'This publication marks the 150th anniversary of the joint presentation of Darwin and Wallace of their thinking about evolution by natural selection to the Linnean Society. The book is a blockbuster because it claims that "Darwin perpetuated one of the greatest crimes in the history of science". It concludes that Darwin plagiarised Alfred Russel Wallace, deceived the world about the maturity of his own ideas before 1858, and, to satisfy his personal need for glory, failed to give credit to scholars who influenced his thinking.
